1) I purchased and used Letter School with the 1st and 2nd grade kiddos that I tutor on Monday mornings. Being a college teacher, I don't have as much interaction with the little ones as I would like. Soooooo I decided to volunteer in a kindergarten and 1st grade classroom on Monday mornings.
I work for about 3 hours tutoring reading skill development with individual children. I have a blast... we work with words in shaving cream, in a sand tray, with clay, with water colors, with magnets... all in all I have 18 different "activity hooks" for engaging the struggling learner. I just picked up number 19... Letter School. It's a fabulous app for the ipad. If you haven't use it yet- do check it out. It's well worth your time. You can click on the picture and go directly to the site.
here for the link to the recipe... just don't look at the calorie count!
3) Made the cutest little Valentine bird that k-3rd graders can make and hang throughout the classroom. Check back on Monday- I'll be sharing the pattern as a freebie on my Monday post. It's super easy. I would love to see these hanging all over the classroom in different colors.
